n00b100 Another show from Summer 2011 that's slid off of radar screens thanks to the last 3 titanic years, but certainly one worth a revisit. Set 1 has a great Cities > Halley's combo with fierce Trey soloing in the former and some fuzzy jamming that Fish hammers away through in the latter, a cool minimalist plinko-y jam in Jim, and a very nifty and super-charged Gin that Fish starts leading towards Golden Age, swerves drunkenly into Manteca, and then blasts back into a triumphant Golden Age/Bathtub Gin finale. Set 2 features a decent enough, hard-rocking DWD that Page and his clavinet help lead into a more relaxed zone before the jam puddles into dreamy ambiance, the last truly Type II #L with some glorious DEG-inspired intricate hose, the infamous "Mike's House" Makisupa, and a Hood that takes a few moves off the beaten path (maybe a Mango-esque tease in there?) before reaching Ye Olde Hood Climax. Summer 2011, as mentioned before, has receded into the background as 3.0 has kicked into a new gear, but this still remains one of the crown jewels from the year and is definitely worth your time.
